Fifty preschool students from Sheltering Arms Child Care Center recently joined Braves General Manager Frank Wren and pitcher David Carpenter to explore healthy eating habits at the City of Refuge's on-site gardening center, as part of the "Grow Up Great Gardening" program.
Braves GM Frank Wren and reliever David Carpenter were on hand, along with executives of PNC and staff/volunteers from the Fernbank Science Center. Together, they worked on gardening plans, healthy meal preparation, and other hands-on experiments.
"The Atlanta Braves organization understands the importance of healthy living and the value of nutritional foods, said Atlanta Braves Director of Community Affairs Ericka Newsome-Hill. "It is vital to ensure our next generation has the knowledge and tools necessary to carry out healthy and abundant lifestyles."
